Reno Dental Trivia Question for November:

George Washington suffered from poor dental health throughout his adulthood. This began in his twenties and he experienced regular toothaches, decay and tooth loss. Contrary to popular belief, none of Washington’s teeth were made of wood. Dr. John Baker fashioned false teeth for Washington out of ivory and this was wired to the remaining real teeth.

Question: When Washington was inaugurated President in 1789, how many of the teeth in his mouth were real?
